bio

door

Sarah Osborne’s voice is like a colourful velvet painting in a second-hand store. Exotic, dark, and textured, it beckons us, in its nostalgia, to bring it home and hang it on the wall, to remind us of a time that was, and a part of ourselves that is sweet, simple, and real.

Sarah hails from a musical family and a background in musical theatre, dance and piano with the Royal Conservatory. She has shared the stage with her songstress cousin Kandle and perfected her performance under the guidance of her uncles David Osborne (a talented multi-instrumentalist) and Neil Osborne of 54.40.

She has toured Canada on her own and amongst other performers, and has even dipped her musical toes into Central America and the US. These days she lives on the West Coast of Vancouver Island home in the quaint town of Bamfield. She is still a vagabond of sorts. As a singer and songwriter, Sarah explores new surroundings both geographically and musically as she journeys across a sultry landscape of folk, blues, jazz and  then some. Her latest duo project called “The Rivendell Sessions” was recorded in the Cowichan Valley in two days and features some stylings of her musical partner Mike Murdoch.

By playing in a diverse collection of venues and being with the woods and on the ocean, Sarah stays inspired and continues to flourish as her repertoire expands and her passion for performing thrives.
